Twin Girl Scouts Honored with Presidential Award!

In Kansas City, MO, KMBC TV 9 reports that Girl Scout twin sisters Maggie and Sophie have been doing community service for half their young lives, and their work recently earned them recognition from the White House.

The two Girl Scouts from the Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri were recently awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award for their many community contributions. From cooking food for local shelters to initiating book drives and much more, these are two very busy girls. Cogratulations to Maggie and Sophie!

The President’s Volunteer Service Award program is a great way to thank and honor those who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.

Awards are given to youth ages 14 and under who have completed 50 or more hours of volunteer service; to individuals 15 and older who have completed 100 or more hours; and to families or groups who have completed 200 or more hours. Lifetime achievement is recognized with a special President's Call to Service Award, which honors those who have provided more than 4,000 hours of service during the course of their lifetime.
